In 1959 Frank Davies opened The Climber's Shop in Ambleside, Cumbria - one of the first outdoor shops in the UK!

For nearly 60 years now the Climbers Shop have offered the very best in climbing, mountaineering, hill walking and trail running gear at great prices, with expertise that's second to none.

snowy footprintWe would like to say a big sorry all of our customers, but due to the heavy snow hitting Cumbria today we have been forced to close the shop early, so that our staff could get home safely.  This of course means that we won’t be able to dispatch the majority of website orders today.  Huge apologies to our online customers for this unfortunate but unavoidable delay.  Hopefully we’ll be able to have all website orders dispatched and en route to their customers on Monday. 

Although we are unable to answer any telephone enquiries today, we are receiving emails remotely so if you have any queries please email us at  We’ll try to respond as quickly as we possibly can.

We are hoping to be open as usual tomorrow (Saturday 4th December), but this going to be very much weather dependent.

Sorry once again for the delay to website orders and any inconvenience caused due to the shop being closed.
